SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gradient Cyber, the mid-market leader in MXDR, is proud to announce that Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, has named Gradient Cyber as the Top InfoSec Innovator 2023 Awards winner in the Extended Detection and Response (XDR) category.

“Gradient Cyber embodies three major features we judges look for with the potential to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
